Why go to a pet shop when there are homeless puppies who need your love? Singapore has hundreds of mongrels in need of homes. If nobody adopts them, they get put to sleep after a life on the streets. These guys deserve better. They deserve a roof over their heads, proper food and more belly rubs. Adopt to give them a better life.
Because mongrels need us more. Everyone knows about Huskies, Corgis or Poodles, but hardly anyone ever thinks mongrel when they want a dog. They're truly the underdogs among dogs. EM is working to change that. We think that mongrels are just as lovely and twice as fun. They will make great companions if you give them a chance.
The Misunderstood Breed
What should I know before I adopt?
It’s easy. Just fill in the adoption form and we’ll be in touch. However, not everyone can adopt a mongrel due to AVS housing regulations. If you live in a condo or a landed estate, there are no limitations on adoption. If you’re a HDB-dweller, you can only adopt mongrels which are HDB-approved under Project ADORE. They must be no taller than 55 cm from shoulder to floor.
"Every Cent Counts; make a difference and give these kids a chance"
Chewbacca needs your help to share his adoption appeal. It’s been over a year since he was unceremoniously returned to us when his adopter left SG 2 years ago.
He’s made tremendous improvement under his current Fosterer but time is running out for this boy. His fosterer has agreed to extend the fostering period until March 2021, to give us a bit more time to find Chewbacca another foster home or adopter.
His journey has not been smooth at all, to say the least, having moved from place to place and finally settled into his current foster home for the past year. The fosterer has been very patient and has very kindly helped train Chewbacca to overcome his reactivity to strangers.
Chewie's reactivity to strangers stems from fear - he used to freeze when he sees somebody approaching, and will lunge and bark to chase them away. With rehab training, Chewie has grown so much in confidence and is generally fine walking past people now.
Chewie is looking for his furever home urgently and needs someone patient who will continue to help him build his confidence and regain trust in people.
Check out his IG @justchewing for more photos and videos of Chewbacca.
Looking to buy a T-shirt that is meaningful and at the same time raises funds for Animal Welfare Groups?
Three T-shirts designs are being launched and sold at $20 each. The proceeds from the sales will go to the training budget of 5 AWGs :
- Chained Dog Awareness Singapore,
- Purely Adoptions,
- Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter,
- Exclusively Mongrels Singapore and
- Action for Singapore Dogs.
These funds are to be used for dogs who need assistance in behaviour rehabilitation to help improve their chances for successful adoption and assimilation into our urban environment.
Most of these dogs have been identified under the Trap Neuter Release Management scheme where stray dogs suitable for rehoming are matched with adopters. These dogs may still need some adjustment to urban domesticated lifestyles and adopters also need to learn how to manage their dog’s anxieties and fears.
Some of these dogs may also have had homes before, but were abused, caged or chained and now need to learn to trust in humans again.
In addition, the message on the T-shirts serve to educate the public to choose science based, positive, force free, humane training methods for their furkids and to say NO to electric collars, prong collars and choke chains.
Shirt up to spread the word in support of positive, force free, humane training methods for our pets !
Let’s create awareness and spread the message: “Choose Force Free, Say NO to electric, choke and prong collars.”
The T-shirts are available for sale and self pick-up at West Coast Vetcare, United
Veterinary Clinic, Gentle Oak Veterinary Clinic, Animal & Avian Veterinary Clinic, Canine Wellness & Rehab Centre or can be couriered.
